Share This:

The iPhone 11 is an impressive device, boasting a powerful processor and a sleek design. However, many users have reported that their iPhone 11 is displaying icons and images in a zoomed-in state.

This issue is caused by the ‘Zoom Mode' feature that is enabled on the iPhone 11 by default. This feature allows the user to zoom in and out of images and other content, but can also cause the icons and images to be displayed in a zoomed-in state.

Fortunately, it is easy to disable this feature on your iPhone 11. To do so, open the Settings app on your device and navigate to Accessibility > Display & Text Size (or Accessibility > Zoom for iOS 13 or later). In this menu, you will find an option to disable the Zoom Mode feature. Once disabled, your device will no longer display images or icons in a zoomed-in state.

It's important to note that disabling this feature will not affect the normal operation of your device in any way other than preventing it from displaying content in a zoomed-in state. Additionally, you can still use pinch-to-zoom gestures on photos or web pages if you wish; you just won't have to worry about accidental zooming when navigating your device's interface.

We hope this guide has helped you understand why your iPhone 11 is displaying its icons and images in a zoomed-in state, as well as how to fix it. If you have any further questions or concerns about your device's display settings, don't hesitate to contact Apple Support for assistance.

Troubleshooting Zoomed-In Screen on iPhone 11

Zoom Mode is likely enabled on your iPhone 11. This feature can be accessed by going to Settings > Accessibility > Zoom, and then turning Zoom Mode off. When Zoom Mode is turned on, it will zoom in on the entire screen of your device, making all the icons appear larger than usual. To prevent this from occurring in the future, make sure to turn off Zoom Mode when you are finished using it.

Unzoom an iPhone

To unzoom your iPhone, you will need to go to the Settings app. On iOS 13 and later, go to Settings > Accessibility > Zoom. On iOS 12 or earlier, go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Zoom. Once you are in the Zoom settings, you can toggle off the Zoom feature. This will reset your iPhone back to its normal zoom level. You may need to restart your device for the changes to take effect.

Troubleshooting an Unexpected Zoom on an iPhone

Your iPhone may suddenly be zoomed in if you accidentally enabled Zoom in Settings. Zoom is an accessibility feature that magnifies the display, making it easier to see for people with vision impairments. To turn off Zoom, go to Settings > Accessibility > Zoom, then tap to turn Zoom off. If you can't access Settings because your Home screen icons are magnified, double-tap with three fingers on the display to zoom out.

Troubleshooting an iPhone That Is Zoomed In and Stuck

Your iPhone may be stuck in zoomed-in mode because of a bug caused by an update, or from an accessibility feature that you enabled. The Zoom feature is designed to make it easier for people with visual impairments to use their device's screen. If this feature has been turned on, it can cause your screen to become stuck in zoomed-in mode. To fix this issue, you can turn off the Zoom feature by going to Settings > Accessibility > Zoom and toggling the switch off. You can also connect your device to a computer and use iTunes to disable Zoom from the Summary/General page.

Unzooming a Phone Screen

To unzoom your phone screen, start by swiping down from the top of the screen to open the quick settings. Tap the Magnification Shortcut icon to enter magnification mode. From here you can either tap the Switch to Full Screen or Switch to Partial Screen buttons, or move the slider to decrease the zoom level. When you are done, tap the Magnification Shortcut icon again to exit magnification mode.


The iPhone 11 has a feature that allows users to zoom in on the display, which is an incredibly useful tool. However, if you are not using the feature, it can be annoying if your icons and other elements become zoomed in. Fortunately, you can quickly turn off the Zoom feature by going to Settings > Accessibility > Display & Text Size or Settings > Accessibility > Zoom (depending on your device's operating system). Once this is done, your iPhone 11 will no longer be zoomed in and you can enjoy using your device without any issues.
